COQUILLE, Ore. (AP) — Oregon State Police say a rock climber was seriously injured in a fall Sunday at Golden and Silver Falls State Natural Area about 24 miles northeast of Coos Bay.

The man was climbing a rock wall near a waterfall when he fell more than 30 feet to the rocks below.

The climber was identified as 39-year-old Jeffrey N. Harden of Coos Bay.

An air ambulance took him to Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend in Springfield. He was listed there Monday in serious condition.
